Antoine, I will post a picture soon... :)

Regarding CC, I did some in post but I could have spent a lot more time grading the picture to make everything look a little more consistent. Thing is, I was shooting at all times of the day and in all different weather conditions (welcome to Seattle!) so I decided to do minimal CC work. Also, for the audience this was meant for, it wasn't really worth the additional time I could have put into it.

I converted it to a 720 24P M2t and played it on my PS3 and it was freaking AWESOME. I wish I could make a movie that was 10% as good. I think my favorite shot is the the through the fence shot of the kid sliding into home.

Steven,

I love the audio you have in that piece. Would you mind letting me know which tracks you used from killertracks.com that you used to compose that? It would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks,

Jon

Good Stuff

Great videography and editing as usual.

However, I think the initial intro sets the atmosphere and this is where it is too slow. Even the title is very sappy for this age range.

For this age range, I think even with low initial video action, the intro, you need faster and a hipper soundtrack. If this is for home use and not distribution, you don't really need royalty free music.

I really don't mean to criticize, but this is the kind of video and age range I shoot occasionally. It is tough to keep kids entertained nowdays, just look at any music video style, crazy.

I couldn't disagree more. I'm sure the kids didn't have *any* problems whatsoever seeing themselves and their friends and weren't tempted by their iPod's, PS3's, and Cell Phones. I think it's people who keep producing faster and faster content because they *think* that's what they have to do to keep "current" are forcing the issue. Is the tail wagging the dog?!?!?

The music choice was, in my opinion, perfect. Who needs to produce content with the same old "tribute" songs you hear everywhere else. I credit Steven for doing this just the way he did and I can guarantee everybody involved loved it.
